Lasagna Roll Ups



This recipe & idea popped in my head last night Especially great when you have left over sauce...I find that when making pasta, I always seem to have too much sauce! Also a great way to use up the left over uncooked lasagna noodles in the box you never know what to to with them,. So you either through them out, or the end up lost in your pantry!! These lasagna roll ups freeze well, freeze each separately in in Zip Loc freeze quart bags, pop in your freezer. hen when you need a quick dinner, just take 1 or 2 lasagna roll ups out of freezer and microwave!!
